The attention to details is a sign of really Big, qualitative game. IMHO.
Why ?! Why what !? Why not...

One example (maybe not the best) is that in PzC the Canal graphics are unused. If you use them for the Albert Canal in the Low Countries (it had the generic river graphics in PzC) or as the Corinth Canal in Greece (ignored in game) it makes for more memorable maps.
It may have used them in 1940 because the canal was barely finished by that year, but DLC 1945 uses alternate graphics.

I personalty love the ideal of campaigns for minor countries.
Gives a new perspective on the war and playing as the underdog against the big countries.

@Rudankort would it be a good idea to have threads (in the public forum) discussing the potential rosters for the smaller factions?

I`m thinking that many of them are not that easy to research, not least due to language barriers, and having them posted publicly while there`s still time to make amendments would make it harder for completely ahistorical equipment to end up in their purchase screen and maybe increase the chances that some key pieces of equipment would not be skipped. I was thinking to start one for Romania with supporting links to articles and pictures. It would be a comprehensive unit roster, but with notes about how important those units were (numbers in use, timeframe in which they were used, whether or not they were bought or produced in the country etc.) so that a slimmer roster could be extracted depending on the need. It could be a good place to discuss things and in the end, the decision of what to include is still yours.

I think we can be more Optimistic than taking that stance!. There is an endless supply of information on the Internet, and we also have a relatively well informed cast of "character's/volunteer's" at this Web-Site who are 'ready'...'willing'...and...'able' to put their 2-cent's in.

I, personally see very little difficulty in acquiring most any type of information that is requested.

Ok!, I was just gone for less than 5 minutes, so im editing this initial posting with more information and this is the result of the 1st Web Site on the Polish Armed Forces that I came across.

In addition, at the bottom of this Web Page is a topic heading entitled... "RELATED ARTICLES"

*** Yugoslavia Armed Forces in WW2
*** Norwegian Armed Forces
*** Austro-Hungarian Army in World War 2
*** Danish Armed Forces – Army, Air...

Although the four "big ones" will always take priority, I also agree that for progress of the game series in general, it would be good to improve this particular aspect as well. However, we'll need to consider this on a case by case basis.
At a bare minimum, give, the smaller participants the units that they actually had. I.e. Canada had Lancaster bombers and spitfire squadrons. Why the hell didn't they in PzC? It's not like it would be hard when said units are already in the game.

The Polish DLC where you first defend against Germany, then counterattack and capture Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich. Then shift east and have a little Barbarossa twist winning that. Then destroy western allies..
How bout it? :D

The phony war could be done also yeah but I think Norway would be a coolers start, maybe the Phony war as an eary few units tutorial mission. After all there wasn't really anything happening there.
Optional. Where do you want to fight? Norway or Belgium/Holland/France?

In PanzerGeneral3dAssault there was a full campaign with the french, the 2eDB of Leclerc (2nd Armor Division of general Leclerc)
The campaign in PG3D started at the landing in France,
but hey PCorps devs you could even build a campaign starting in Africa, at least as a tutorial..
